8.3C.5  TITLE IV-E, Foster Care Maintenance Payments Program, State Plan/Procedural Requirements, Trial home visit

Browse By Policy Area

Question 1.  
What is the regulatory definition of a trial home visit?

Question 2.  
Often, courts do not specify time periods for trial home visits for children in foster care. If a court does not specify a time period, should we assume it cannot be longer than six months without having to re-establish eligibility for title IV-E foster care payments?

Question 3.  
Would a continuance of a hearing scheduled to address the trial home visit satisfy the requirement that for title IV-E funding to continue, a court must order a longer visit?

Question 4.  
Must the State hold six-month periodic reviews and permanency hearings for children on trial home visits?
